Bloggers Getting Fit: Making Fitness Fun

Bloggers

This week my #fabFITbloggers group is sharing the ways that we make fitness fun. My favorite way to encourage myself to get a workout in, is rewarding myself with "me time." I tell myself if I run for 20 minutes, I can sneak in a nap later, or an hour with a good book, a soak in the tub, etc. Self care begets self care. In the end I've worked … [Read more...]

Friendship in Motherhood

Friendship in Motherhood

As we transition into motherhood, our friendships change form and become something different entirely. Before this life where we were ruled by tiny dictators- we had ladies nights, long phone conversations, spa days- we pulled all nighters, and slept all day.

My pile of laundry is forever growing larger, overwhelming me every time I open my closet. My bathroom sink leaks with a constant drip, drip, drip. As I opened my kitchen … [Read more...]

The sun shines brighter, your children seem nicer, and your Husband looks more appealing. You lose that blurry haze that seemed to surround your thoughts and actions for months upon months (sometimes years!). Your ability to have … [Read more...]

Traumatized

FAIL

Today I was "That" Mother. The one who rolled her eyes as she dropped her son off in the church nursery because I had just dealt with his 312th tantrum of the morning, and could not wait to sip some coffee and sit in the church service alone. The mother who snuck out a few minutes early to try and go to the bathroom unaccompanied. The … [Read more...]

A List of the Modern Mom’s Playdate Worries

Since 1931

The modern mom's playdate worries stem from the playdates of our childhood. Here's a peek into what a Playdate looks like today, as opposed to the one's when we were children. The morning of a Playdate today: -Make sure the house is clean enough that it doesn't seem dirty- but messy enough that it doesn't look like you're showing off. Scrub … [Read more...]
